GTT of France reports that maritime transport and logistics company CMA CGM has chosen GTT's global portfolio of services and assistance for the commissioning, operation and maintenance of its future 23,000 TEU LNG-powered container ships equipped with GTT membrane containment technologies.

With an 18,600 m3 LNG tank, these ships are the largest container ships to use LNG as fuel. The GTT service package includes training of crews of the CMA CGM fleet through the provision of the GTT's G-Sim training simulator, specially adapted to replicate the LNG operations of CMA CGM vessels.

GTT will provide on board technical assistance during the commissioning of LNG tanks and during the first bunkering operations. If necessary, CMA CGM may obtain 24/7 technical assistance, through data continuously collected on board which allows the GTT teams to assist and advise CMA CGM as closely as possible. In addition, the analysis tools integrated in the connected version will allow a follow-up over time of the tanks and their insulation spaces.

With the entry into force of IMO 2020 and in order to facilitate the adoption of LNG as marine fuel, GTT continues to expand its portfolio of services to ship-owners, to facilitate shipowners’ entry into the world of LNG, a clean fuel.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, said: “We are constantly expanding our range of services to meet the new expectations of ship-owners and are therefore very pleased to be able to support CMA CGM in the commissioning, operation and maintenance of its LNG powered vessels.”
